The day after the Heartbleed Bug was brought into mass awareness, I was sifting through my email inbox to find some delivered from web services I am subscribed to, all containing some reference to this new exploit that had been discovered. They were confirming the security of their data, patched systems, and for my call to action to “change my password”. With a little research I turned my attention to the website heartbleed.com. I would like to point you on to that site and it’s great references.
Be sure to update & install the necessary patches for openssl packages on your operating system, also that all websites and webservices you use have patched the vulnerability before changing your passwords.
